Please join me in welcoming Joe Yong to the second edition of Asia’s largest SQL Conference, the one who needs no introduction in the SQL world, yet I want to take the privilege of introducing him to the SQL community in Asia!

Joe Yong is currently a program manager in the SQL Server team working on Stretch Database. He was part of the original core incubation team of 3 that started this project almost 2 years ago. Most of his time is spent making sure the engine and service solves the right customer problems, in the right way. He also tries to ensure they can be deployed and managed by customers without help from Yoda, gallons of Jolt cola or keyboard smashing (unless it’s one of those noisy clickety ones – those need to be smashed). Other SQL Server projects Joe worked on include upgrade, migrate, Power BI and replay. Joe’s areas of focus are typically on performance, security, infrastructure, scalability and manageability. Between stints at Microsoft, he spent several years as a consultant working with organizations around the world mostly with SQL Server but also other enterprise databases. When not working with SQL Server, Joe pretends to onsight 5.11s while endlessly warming up on 5.8s. He is also seeking a cure to his 3-year old Australian Labradoodle’s obsession with squeaky tennis balls (I suspect cross-DB referential integrity might be easier to solve. :) ).

Joe Yong is a consultant with vast exposure to the data around the world. He will be bringing the ultimate knowledge to the Asia’s Largest SQL Conference.

Joe will be delivering a breakout session at SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2016 in Cloud track. Joe is equally excited to be part of Asia’s largest SQL conference.

Simply put, what a privilege to continue announcing SQL rockstars for SSGAS 2016. This is just the beginning to the battery of power-packed speakers we are bringing to the SQL community in Asia.

What does it mean for you? This is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear him, meet him and learn from the expert!

And I hope you have not missed the highlights from SSGAS 2015.

SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit will be a mega event – For the second year in a row for SQL Community, By the SQL Community, Of the SQL Community! And this is going to be a star studded event!
